It has been a few weeks since Gerald had indicated that he was late on an update and still there has been no release of any update on the PowerGenius XL Amp.  Normally "No News Is Good News" but in the case I am not sure.   As I and many other will be in Dayton in little over than a week, it sure would be nice to get an update before that show.   Maybe one that says "We are Shipping!" would be nice but at least an update.   What say Flex?

Is it realistic to ask this question every couple days?

This last weekend (two days ago, about April 29th 2018):

Tim - W4TME, Customer Experience Manager                      


Testing is going well in one regard and that is our testing team has really put the amp through a multitude of operating scenarios that has stress tested various subsystems of the amp.  Some of the tests would not even be ones that a ham would do with the amp.  The alpha team is doing exactly what we asked of them and it has generated exactly the type of results we have anticipated.  This has resulted in a better and more robust amp design than the initial builds but at the expense of time.

The finalization of the hardware is close, as the project manager has indicated.

When we get to the next step of deployment, there will be an update from the management team.

Pretty certain the next official FRS updates will be discussed here at the community.

As frustrating as it may seem the FRS also goes pretty quiet in the run up to Dayton each year - I imagine a mixture of "keeping their powder dry" and just plainly being busy getting ready for Dayton.

If you have a pre-order in place you might want to follow up on that order to see if you can get any personalized update, but kind of think not so much... and if you're just kibitzing I'd guess you too will be watching the community and official FRS website for any updates.
